    Not much in the way of Mods to keep you guys updated with but I did finally get around to having Hotchkiss Subframe Connectors welded on, also trimmed off 1/2” off the LCA Bumpers.. Michael I don’t how you were driving on the bumpers and a bad Idler Arm.

    This week: Idler Arm Replacement

    This winter: Rear Pinion seal, U-joints, possible new Yoke, Repair Oil Pan Leaks.

    Idler arm replacement didn't cut it, it was actually a PST unit which had some slop to it, the Moog one I put it didn't go in willingly, super tight. Looks like i'll need to do the Pitman arm and adjust the PS Box, quite a bit of play at the wheel.

    Long Term I'll probably need to do a PS Box and Pump Upgrade or go Manual Steering with a 16:1 Box.

        Back from the shop.

        Still working some kinks out with the new reman'd Saginaw Pump, but the Borgeson Steering Box has made the car much more connected to the steering wheel. No more slop!

        I didn't think I would feel a change from 3.55 to 3.23's kicking around town but it noticeable, however on the freeway 300 rpm drop at 65mph seem to be better suited for a 727 3 speed trans.
